It should be well-known that e-mail addresses can’t win lotteries – especially without actually participating in them – and such “win notifications” only are interested in address and bank data and possibly advance-fee fraud.
Also known should be that automatic translations can produce funny results.1
But that such mails come from the future – wow!
This one specimen arrived on July 7 at 17:11 (that’s 5:11 pm), but would be will sent on July 8 at 11:09 UTC in order to will informed have me on July 9 about the “drawing” from July 8 had. Or something to that extent. It’s so difficult with these tenses…
(The mail is also funny for its “German”, but there’s not much point in showing it here in the English part of my blog…)
- especially if they need two steps, e.g. Russian → English → German [↩]
